Hair clips existed as long as the human race had hair. Even the cave dwellers showed evidence that they fashioned crude hairpins from thorns, sticks, bones, and stone. During the ancient Roman times, however, hairpins were also used as containers for perfume or poison. They morphed into bobby pins during the Victorian era when it was unfashionable for women to have loose hair showing .
While most hair clips are used to hold a hairstyle in place when you are ready to go out, this type of hair clip is actually used to help you style your hair. While they look similar to alligator clips, they do not have any teeth on them and aren’t generally worn out of the home. If you are going to be using curlers to curl your hair then you will want to make sure that you have some of the clips on hand. They are great for making sure that your hair is secure and held in place on the curler without allowing it to slip out of position. Additionally, because the sections of the clip that will be holding your hair are flat and do not have teeth, you don’t have to worry about the clip causing your wet hair to kink or look damaged .
Another way that these clips are commonly used to help you style your hair is if you are going to be doing finger waves. They are ideal for holding finger waves in place since they do not cause the hair to dry in funny shapes or with any texture and will ensure that your waves do not shift while they dry. If you like to style your own hair, then these clips are necessary to help you ensure that you get the look that you want.
